Ask any skincare expert—even skinfluencers—for an under-the-radar, affordable, pore-clearing serum and I bet most recommend Paula’s Choice. The brand’s Skin Perfecting Exfoliant is just that good at removing dead skin cells while clearing pores, and has even gone viral on TikTok for its visible results. Luckily, there’s a Paula’s Choice sale happening right as we speak, where everything across the site is 20 percent off. Even better, if you spend 75+ dollars, that discount goes up to 25 percent (!!!).

Even those who don’t have acne can benefit from a salicylic acid exfoliant. But it’s important to make sure the formula isn’t too harsh that it’ll strip the skin and damage the microbiome, causing more oil production. This one is effective without being damaging, with 2 percent salicylic acid (a BHA) that removes congestion and dead skin cells, leaving skin more even-toned. BHAs just can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

The Paula’s Choice BHA was made without parabens, sulfates, phthalates, silicones and fragrances, so it’s unlikely to irritate your skin. Still, be sure to start slow and work up to 1-2 times a day.
